Scottish Folk Tales of Coast and Sea

Regular price £14.99

Scotland has over 11,600 miles of coastline, so it’s no surprise that the sea and shore have been inspiring folk tales for millennia.

In Scottish Folk Tales of Coast and Sea, Orkney storyteller Tom Muir weaves tales from this lore-steeped shoreline, finding selkie folk, pirates and even the devil in the liminal space between land and sea. Learn how death was captured in a nut, how a mermaid wreaked her revenge and how whirlpools were created.

Discover a land beneath the waves, the mysterious island of Tir-nan-Og and a chorus of demon cats – but beware the most grotesque monster of them all, the hideous Nuckelavee.
